Les Hauts de Smith 2017 – Pessac-Léognan

Les Hauts de Smith 2017 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fresh, mineral and racy. Currently the wine needs to be put in carafe. It reveals notes of ripe / fresh citrus, pink lychee and small notes of white fruits combined with fine touches of lime blossom as well asa very subtle hint of fresh rose. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers precision, an acidulous / juicy frame, gourmandize, a beautiful tension, a fine grain, suavity as well as a fine straightness / vertical side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy / ripe lemon, juicy / ripe grapefruit and small notes of litchi associated with fine touches of white flowers / lime blossom as well as hints of racy minerality and discreet toasted hints. Beautiful acidulous persistence.
